AN ABUSIVE MOTHER

Raised in the suburb of Riverside, California, twenty-year-old college student Jason Bautista endured for years his emotionally disturbed mothers verbal and psychological abuse. She even locked him out of the house, tied him up with electrical cord, and on one occasion, gave him a beating that sent him to the emergency room. His fifteen-year-old half brother Matthew Montejo also was a victim to Jane Bautistas dark mood swings and erratic behavior, but for some reason, Jason received the brunt of the abuse—until he decided hed had enough…

A SONS REVENGE

On the night of January 14, 2003, Jason strangled his mother. To keep authorities from identifying her body, he chopped off her head and hands, an idea he claimed he got from watching an episode of the hit TV series “The Sopranos.” Matthew would later testify in court that he sat in another room in the house with the TV volume turned up while Jason murdered their mother. He also testified that he drove around with Jason to find a place to dump Janes torso.

A CRIME THAT WOULD BOND TWO BROTHERS

The morning following the murder, Matthew went to school, and Jason returned to his classes at Cal State San Bernardino. When authorities zeroed in on them, Jason lied and said that Jane had run off with a boyfriend shed met on the Internet. But when police confronted the boys with overwhelming evidence, Jason confessed all. Now the nightmare was only just beginning for him…

Synopsis:

After enduring years of abuse and desperate for a normal life, two Riverside, California, half-brothers kill their mother and try to hide the crime by chopping off her head and hands in a copycat killing inspired by a TV show. Original.

Synopsis:

On January 27, 2003 in Riverside, California, 20 year old Jason Bautista and his 15-year old half-brother, Matthew Montejo, were arrested for killing their mother and then trying to cover their tracks by chopping off her head and hands the way they saw it done on an episode of THE SOPRANOS.

After years of verbal abuse, severe punishment, and being locked out of the house, the two boys conspired to get rid of their mother so that they could live a normal life.

The case is one of at least eight nationwide copycat killings that have come to light since 1995. All of these cases have received major local and national media attention.
